Today (06) marks the 7th anniversary of the victory of the 2014 ICC World Cup T20 by the Sri Lankan cricket team.

While Bangladesh hosted the 2014 World Cup, neighboring India had qualified for the final against Sri Lanka.

Prior to this tournament, Sri Lanka had suffered defeats in two finals of the T20 World Cup and lost to India in the final of the 2011 ODI World Cup.

Even with a lot of pressure from the previous defeats, the Sri Lankan cricket team, led by Lasith Malinga, was able to win the T20 World Cup in 2014.

However, seven years ago, Sri Lanka was enthroned as the number one ODI team in the world, but now we have to join the qualifying round for this year's World T20.

Seven years later, Sri Lanka slipped to ninth place in the World T20 rankings as Afghanistan qualified for the World T20.
